Join Greenpeace in saying thank you to Dominica

whales

Greenpeace is asking the public to join them in saying “thank you” to Dominica for its stance against commercial whaling by signing an e-letter to be sent to Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit. As thei website explains, “Japan has been working behind the scenes at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) trying to reestablish commercial whaling. They have been lobbying and promising lucrative deals to countries that side with Japan and vote to open up commercial whaling once again. The tiny Island of Dominica, in the Caribbean, has decided to rebuff Japan and say no to supporting their efforts to whale commercially. This makes Dominica the only East Caribbean IWC member country that does not support Japan’s drive to resume commercial whaling.”

They are urging the public to go to the link below to sign their letter, which they hope will encourage Dominica to maintain its resolve to oppose the return of commercial whaling.
